The Wave Loch FLOW Tour has divisions for bodyboarders and flowboarders, men and women, boys and girls, amateur and professional, young and old. For the past ten years, the Tour has inspired an ever-expanding level of competition among bodyboarders and flowboarders around the United States.

As the biggest national FlowRiding tour in the world, the US Tour sets the standard in every way. This year, there are even bigger stakes in the FLOW Tour, the top four highest scoring riders, two male flowboarders, one female flowboarder and one bodyboarder, win a trip to Singapore to compete in the World FlowRider Championships. “This was the forth year having the tour here in Ogden. It was great to host the national finals this year,” AJ Fillpot, FlowRider Utah instructor and competitive rider, told us. AJ continued, “The turn out was huge. There were 80 competitors with 35-40 local riders. We have the most locals turn out for the tour stop. The competition sponsor Wave Loch compliments the locals in Utah for showing up in big numbers.” The Flow Tour stop brought many well-known competitors from across the United States to Utah to defend their national titles. Two of the best boarders, Sean Silvera and Nick Nguyen flaunted their best 360s, shuvits, kick flips and secret-weapon skills.
